Kirill Petrenko and Yuja Wang at the Lucerne Festival

For the first time, the Berliner Philharmoniker are going on tour with their future chief conductor, Kirill Petrenko. In Lucerne, they will present Franz Schmidt’s late-Romantic sounding Fourth Symphony and Prokofiev’s breathtaking Piano Concerto No. 3 with Yuja Wang as the soloist – works that have already been performed in Berlin. The Süddeutsche Zeitung reported it was a “beguiling event”: “Petrenko’s unrestrained musical emotion and penetrating interpretation electrified the orchestra and the public.”
